Summer Gazpacho

Summer gazpacho recipes

Gazpacho—red, white, or green—is a celebration of all that’s fresh in summer. The best gazpachos use the ripest, juiciest tomatoes, the crispest cucumbers and peppers, the liveliest, most fragrant herbs. They’re perfect for too-hot-to-cook nights, and made-ahead, these flavorful soups show up at the party ready to impress.


Gazpacho Shots

These fun shots beg to be served at an outdoor cocktail party. In Portugal, a single ice cube is often added to a bowl of gazpacho for cool relief. Here, a tomato juice ice cube and a frozen cucumber slice do the same, in style.

This ever-so-slight twist on classic gazpacho includes red bell pepper for sweetness and cumin for nuance. It’s garnished with homemade croutons for crunch and cilantro for a burst of bright flavor.

Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Gazpacho with Shrimp

Hearty and thick from chopped tomatoes, herbs, and roasted peppers (but not a speck of bread), this gazpacho uses lemon juice instead of the traditional vinegar. The addition of shrimp makes it a substantial starter.
